You can help by organising a litter pick in your area…

We will help by providing you with equipment and advice and taking the rubbish away afterwards…

You can show others how easy it is to make your area a hot spot, not a grot spot by spreading the word and organise more litter picks or make it a regular group Here’s what you need to know to get started on keeping Cornwall clean.

    All it needs is for parents to instil into their offspring from an early age to respect others and the environment. What gives these lazy irresponsible people the right to turn areas of our country into eyesores?

    Hundreds of people are clearing rubbish and debris from beaches around Cornwall. The "Great Cornish Beach Litter Pick" has been organised by Volunteer Cornwall and Clean Cornwall. They said following the storms which have pounded Cornwall, the aim was to "show the world that we are open for business". There are organised events at around the county, including Newquay, St Ives, Looe and Falmouth. ORGANISED BEACH CLEANS Summerleaze beach, Bude Polzeath Looe Gyllynvase beach, Falmouth Porthmeor beach, St Ives Perranporth Fistral beach, Newquay Par Porthtowan Gwithian "We're organising 10 simultaneous beach cleans around the county," Volunteer Cornwall's Andy Brelsford told BBC News. http://tinyurl.com/o338zpr

    Tourism raises 11% of Cornwall's GDP Bigger and that includes locally spent cash. It's not the big deal you would have everyone believe.

    "Tourism is vitally important to the economy of Cornwall and generates £1.5B of visitor spend and supports over 30,000 jobs." said Joan Symons, the Council's portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure." http://tinyurl.com/na96uzc

    Yes tourism is the life blood of Cornwall, now is the time to get things spick and span for their arrival. This is an ideal opportunity to awaken those who have been in partial hibernation since last September, time now to limber up and clean up, why not?

  • Big_Ger  |  February 18 2014, 8:26PM

    An Balores, did you not stop to think that we Cornish may want to clean up our beaches as we love them and our county? Typical Cornish nationalist thinking from you,always negative, always against, never positive.

  • AnBalores  |  February 18 2014, 9:45PM

    Tourism raises 11% of Cornwall's GDP source: ONS 2012 Not quite as important as Bigger would have us believe considering the damage it causes. Agriculture and food are far bigger Bigger.

  • AnBalores  |  February 18 2014, 9:46PM

    I am also Cornish Bigger. Not a pseudo English man like you.

    by AnBalores Tuesday, February 18 2014, 9:45PM . "Tourism raises 11% of Cornwall's GDP source: ONS 2012 "Not quite as important as Bigger would have us believe considering the damage it causes. Agriculture and food are far bigger Bigger." Oh, that's alright then. According to your logic we don't need £1.5 billion and 30,000 jobs. To you those things are just "not quite important". So speaks the blind nationalist and supporter of division.

    27,000 and some of those seasonal jobs taken up by incomers actually bigothereandnowhere.

  • Taxman100  |  February 19 2014, 12:24PM

    Cornish Nationalists don't want tourism of any kind. They believe the County (ooops, unidentifiable country) belongs solely to them, and they may dictate to all others what may, or may not take place within it. Thankfully, support for such ideas are limited to the few who claim to be be more "Cornish" than the Cornish. AB would seem to personify this situation.

  • rickoon  |  February 19 2014, 1:25PM

    "27,000 and some of those seasonal jobs taken up by incomers actually" And with the Eastern Europeans working on the land, this gives the Cornish plenty of time to do nothing but moan about how hard done by they are. I learned the value of hard work by working hard Pard, how about you?

  • Big_Ger  |  February 19 2014, 9:00PM

    "27,000 and some of those seasonal jobs taken up by incomers actually bigothereandnowhere." Says "An Balores". It doesn't take long for the racism which lies at the heart of Cornish nationalism to come out
